When it comes to cooking this Halloween, we have one piece of advice for you — don’t be a basic witch! Yes, a charcuterie board is always a good idea, but there are so many ways to switch up a standard spread to something more spellbinding. Below, check out these inspo-worthy Halloween boards and get ready to let your creativity run amok!

Spooky, Scary Sweets

If candy is the highlight of your Halloween, turn your charcuterie board into something a bit sweeter. Gather your favorite candies (fruity, chocolaty and sour, please!) and spread ‘em out by color and texture. Pop on a skeleton hand (or two) and you’ve got yourself a platter of treats (tricks not included).

Cute and Classic

C’mon — no one will ever turn down a spread of meats, cheeses and crackers. For a simple yet subtle Halloween touch, use a cookie cutter to form Brie into a ghost! Throw in a corner of candy corn and a pumpkin or two to tie the whole thing together.

Ghouls Night In

Hosting a Halloween movie night? Throw on your favorite spooky sweats, set up a killer display and show off a selection of your favorite baked goods. Though store-bought is perfectly fine, we highly recommend our favorite homemade Halloween desserts!

Guts and Glory

Who knew a skeleton could be so useful? Surround, stuff and layer your creepy creature with a mix of sweet and savory choices for a scary good grazing board. Bonus points if you serve it with scary splattered napkins, too.

Creepy Crawly

A bony skeleton and plenty of critters add a creepy touch to your delicious cheese plate.

Pumpkin to Talk About

Little ghouls and goblins will adore this dinner board, which features sweet (but not too spooky!) ghosts and savory mummies. Even better? The kiddos will love to snack as they please and eat with their hands, too. After all, if you can’t get messy on Halloween, when can you?

We Want Candy

Consider this the ultimate excuse to eat all the candy you could possibly crave. Bring on the gummy worms, candy corn and chocolates!

Hallows Eve Elegance

To keep the mischief minimal, stick to a color palette and subtle décor. The end result is ultra-impactful — and impressive, too.
